Very sociable of you. In the final analysis, IMHO only, the general needs to keep his business on base and not in town, city, or county.

I cannot tell you how many issues i had with the base as a council member and then as a sergeant for the SO.

No personal animosity mind you …

TTJ. It is seemingly apparent you prefer to argue with everyone that does not share your opinion and or opinions on many subjects and that is what it is an opinion and not a fact.

I still want to know how the general got his information about a civilian not associated with the base …

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the county of San Bernardino for doing things right.

What many do not understand is county counsel must be brought into the decision tree as to what information is released and how it is release so as to avoid multi-million dollar lawsu…

If anyone can assist 29 Palms Frank Luckino can. I have worked with him and he is truly an amazing individual and a very knowledgeable city manager.

Thanks for all you have done and will do Frank. You have my complete trust and confidence.

Fair points TTJ. It appears others in the Basin also think the general - to put it nicely - stepped out of his realm.

My point being the general can do whatever he wishes on his base but he is crossing a line that has stood for centuries when he interferes in the civilian community …

You and I have gone toe to toe before there TTJ. What proof do you have that the general is right in his assertion?

A simple question?

Please do not do the typical Fox news rhetorical by saying what proof do you have he is wrong! Fact is he is wrong until he proves he is right.

I will just be simple here. The general in my opinion can keep his base informed however he likes. What he does not have is the right to scare the civilians that do not live on his base.

Matters such as this are the business of our civilians that run our towns and cities not a gener…

It appears many are missing my concern. As of today not one source confirms this general's FB post Since when did FB become a reliable source of information?

So general.. tell us where you got your information or are you just another social media sycophant.

As for you alleged …

So is this the new way to get information. A general makes a facebook post - a dubious source of any information at all. A Town manager says he knows nothing about what the general is talking about.

Bottom line is in my opinion - What is a general doing posting information about a c…

Well Facebook is not a trustworthy source of information and i am somewhat astonished that the United States Marine Corps has devolved to using social media as a means to communicate with the civilian population.

My former employer did its best to steer us away from having social me…
